We had spent 4 nights in a beautiful resort in Waikoloa before staying here for 2 night on our honeymoon. We were not expecting much as we booked it for convenience. We did not want to be driving in the dark for too long so staying in Volcano was essential for us. The host is quiet but we did not... More

The Inn is very close to Volcano National Park. Each room had a lanai. The restaurants in the area were very good. The host described each of them to us and also had a menu. The host is quiet but very accommodating. The breakfast was advertised as continental but was a full breakfast. It was not the best breakfast I... More

I guess when I came here given I paid close to $200US I was going to get something a little better. The room was massive! The size of some peoples entire flats in the UK. However was surprised to learn they close 9.30pm so don't be a late arrival. Stayed open a little longer though to see us in (which... More

Located away from road for a very quiet stay. Room was extra large and clean. Breakfast was the worst of any of the dozens of B&B's we have stayed in. Skip the breakfast and eat out. Host was not very friendly.

I chose the Volcano Forest Inn because of it's proximity to the Volcano National Park and because it's one of the few places in that area with a TV nd Wifi in the room a. My husband would have lost his mind if he didn't have his nightly hour of surfing the channels before bed. Both of us travel constantly... More

The Inn is a little hard to find since it is set so far back on the road. Convenient to a couple of local restaurants and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, allowing us to go to the park twice during our stay. Easy trip to Hilo, if you want to see the city. But we have stayed at nearly 40 bed... More

The hotel is very close to the national park so it's at the perfect place to sleep after your whole day activities in the park. The property is hidden behind a narrow drive way but GPS has no problem finding it. The house is very well maintained and the room we stayed is spacious. it was cold on the day... More

Yes the rooms are spacious and clean. The location is wonderful for visiting the park. We will have to agree with most of the reviewers that there is no atmosphere, an unfriendly welcome and an unfriendly rudimentary breakfast. An empty blackboard would have more personality than the innkeepers. The staff had barking dogs and spoke of nothing but her personal... More

This place has a great potential. However, in reality it is disappointing. The place is deserted. An unpleasant welcome. Unpleasant atmosphere. Room is spacious and clean but lacks any warmth. Breakfast is at a very low level. Read previous recent reviews ad well. Go look for another place!!!

I echo what has been said here. There is absoluely NO atmosphere to this place at all. You dont feel like you are on vacation here, and there is no Hawaiian vibe at all. The innkeepers are not suited to this work, they complain about personal problems (dont want to hear this on vacation!) This is not a good value... More
